Last Kiss Chord Chart by Pearl Jam

Welcome to my Last Kiss chord chart by Pearl Jam. This song was originally done by Wayne Cochoran and then redone by Frank Wilson and the Cavaliers and finally by Pearl Jam. That's the one I know best, so that is the one charted out here. VERY simple beginner guitar song. Probably one of the first I teacher my students. Very repetitive with a couple of minor variations where you have to hold the G chord for an extra measure.

The strumming is very easy so this makes this a great song for beginner guitar players. 

Easy strum:

1 2 + 3 4 
D DU

Strum:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
D   DU    UDU
